The Dooku will be VERY INTERESTING in done.

Assuming that is a Luke ESB. Not too surprising as all they needed to do is a small amount of retooling of the Luke ANH.

Also...Ahsoka's lightsaber is only really a slight retooling of a Luke ANH / Anakin ROTS so no real surprise there.


Sad that there is no Obi-Wan TPM/AOTC there though  :'(

Awesome, a Dooku would be really sweet! i'm guessing many Bothans died to bring us this information? The Ashoka hilt is a good idea, but to me it looks a little unweildy. To many things sticking out of it towards the top. the luke, whether ESB or ROTJ is gonna be a good seller if they do it right. the RoTJ is the one I would hope they make. Sidious, small, intricate, beautiful, I hope they can do this one without over-butchering it. I'd still probabaly buy one though. :D ;)

I wonder why it is so difficult to get the TPM / AOTC. I mean, yes, the Negotiator is small in diameter (smaller the Yoda ROTS FFX) but I mean, come on. It can be done. Sure it will be slightly thicker, but hey, wht FFX isn't?

As long as it doesn't look like the MR prototype... :P

Sidious, Dooku, and Obi(TPM/AOTC) to me are a must and inexcusable that they have not already been made.

Surprisingly enough, I think Ahsoka Tano's saber is one of the coolest sabers in EU and the movies for that matter. SO i would definitely like to see that one.

All I've got to say is there had better be a Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan TPM FX done at some point or I'm gonna be a very, very unhappy Jedi. >:(

2010...I certainly hope it's better than 2009 was! ::)
10/10/10~Well, so far with my Father's passing away, I'd say that this year was actually worse than 2009, even the fact that I now have a full time job (For now) isn't anywhere near enough to make up for that...so...maybe 2011 will be better? I'm not holding my breath... ::)

Interesting rumors, most interesting  ;). I can expect Dooku Fx to be something nice perhaps, but Sidious Fx, hmm I don't know about that. I have these horrible visions on that one  :o

I think a Sidious could be done well. The only problem i foresee would that most people would most likely fin the hilt to be too thick for a Sidious saber.

Wow to have either a Sidious or Dooku would be amazing but, I'm a little worried they are going to be WAY oversized but, then again the hasbro Obi-Wan is a little smaller than the MR maybe it's a sign of things to come.

So in short I agree with you SD and EP

Now you're scaring me  :o
